Dr Nicola Saywell
My background is as a clinical physiotherapist and I have been a lecturer at AUT for 12 years. I am actively involved in research investigating motor control and motor learning, particularly how they are affected following neurological injury and disease. My particular interest currently, is in using low-cost telecommunication devices to improve access to rehabilitation for people following stroke. To have a significant impact in this area it is vital to work with people who have skills in the technology, engineering and business sectors. Med tech Core will allow implementation of novel rehabilitation strategies through collaboration.
